Off colour Blues see off Broadstreet
a bright start and the hosts had fine defence from scrum half Jordan Brookes and lock Harrison Lewis to thank for keeping the scores level.
The opening try came on 15 minutes, fine work from The Blues’ pack ensured skipper Mike Finnemore could get around the fringe and dot down. Lewis Barker converted for a 7-0 half time lead.
Macclesfield came out after half time and got off to a blistering start, scoring a try started and finished by full back Matt O’Regan. The missed conversion meant it was 12-0.
The visitors then put a sustained period of pressure on the Macclesfield line but fine defence from The Blues, with debutant Joe Palmer key, kept the opposition at bay.
Broadstreet failed to get off the mark until just before the hour mark, fly-half Lee Chapman with the three points.
This was cancelled out on 72 minutes by a Macc penalty by Barker, and a late yellow to Broadstreet’s Chris Idehen helped to consolidate The Blues victory and keep the Cheshire side at the top of National Two North.
